Gibson Country Western SJN Acoustic, 1957

Gibson Country Western SJN Acoustic, 1957

The Gibson Country Western began its life as the SJN, or Southern Jumbo Natural finish, in 1956 and was quickly renamed. The SJ itself first appeared in 1942 and replaced the J-55 built from 1939 to 1942. As one might suspect, this model was targeted towards the Southern American States, especially those south of the Mason-Dixon line.

The Gibson Country Western Model made its debut in 1956 as a miracle of rebranding – it is the classic Gibson SJ-N, Southern Jumbo Natural, with a new label! Until 1964, this model – like other Gibson dreadnoughts – was a round shoulder design. At that point, it’s likely that market pressures like the popularity of the Martin style changed the shape to square shoulders.
